Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome to Kent State University!

Graduate Student Orientation is held prior to the start of fall and spring semesters and all new graduate students are encouraged to attend.  Whether you are a full-or part-time student, pursuing a master's or doctoral degree, GSO is for you, as it provides an opportunity to learn about university resources and network with other new graduate students, along with representatives of KSU's faculty, staff, and administration.  Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) supplements department and program-level orientations to help you understand our university community as a whole. 

Fall 2015 GSO will be held on Tuesday, August 25 and Wednesday, August 26 in the Kent Student Center. Newly admitted graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend GSO; however, new teaching assistants are required to attend GSO.  If you have specific questions regarding GSO, please contact Dr. Kate McAnulty at kmcanult@kent.edu  or 330-672-2180.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
